  1. question…. is that a plume (blue mist-like) coming from a cone?? in the center of one of the first photos….or is it an artifact?

  2. No idea. These are early release images and they didn’t come with a lot of science interpretation. Best to go check on the mission web site and post that question there. I’d guess it’s an artifact, but I don’t really know.
